Draw a parallelogram PQRS with sides PQ = 4 inch and PS = 5 inch and angle P is 60 degree.
Step 1: To make a parallelogram first make a straight line and mark its end points as P and Q of length 4 inch. Then plot an angle of 60 degree at Point P.
Step 2: Then mark an arc along PS.
Step 3: Then using scale Set the length 5 inch and mark an arc along Line Segment PS then place sharp point of compass at point Q and make an arc 5 inch above point B.
Step 4: Set compass to 4 inch and put the sharp end at S and make an arc to bisect the arc that is drawn in above step and mark intersecting point R and join points R and S.
Step 5: At last join all points and we get a parallelogram PQRS.
Now we will see some formulas based on parallelogram.
Area of parallelogram is given as:
Area of parallelogram = b * h, here ‘b’ denotes breadth and ‘h’ denotes the height of parallelogram. Using this formula we can find area of parallelogram. This is all about area of parallelogram.
